The Craft of Cursing - exhibition from Louise Fenton
Dr Louise Fenton, Senior Lecturer Visual Communications, has curated this year’s exhibition at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, Cornwall. Titled ‘Poppets, Pins and Power: The Craft of Cursing’, the exhibition brings together Louise’s research over the past few years. It is displayed in sections to consider the social history behind the use of the poppet, the doll with pins in, as well as more everyday objects such as shoes and clothing. Louise has been researching these objects to find out their stories and the hidden tales they have to tell. The exhibition is open until October 31 2017 and then on occasional weekends until early January 2018.
Louise will be giving two talks at the Museum in August (5th and 26th, small cost) and a guided tour of the exhibition on Friday 25th August 2017 (museum entrance fee applies).
